I am trying to bench test x670E Steel Legend, cpu (7950x), one stick of memory (in B2 position) and power supply. I have not installed CPU Fan yet. Looking at this video from Asrock explaining their Post Status Checker, the lights do eventually turn off (successfully booting according to the video). The problem is that I don't get any video either from onboard or pcie video card. Any ideas? I was thinking maybe it was because do not have the CPU fan installed yet.

CPU: Ryzen 9 7950x

Motherboard: X670E Steel Legend

Ram: Crucial RAM 64GB Kit (2x32GB) DDR5 4800MHz CL40 Desktop Memory CT2K32G48C40U5

GPU: Onboard & EVGA Geforce GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5

PSU: Seasonic FOCUS Plus 1000 Gold SSR-1000FX 1000W 80+ Gold ATX12V & EPS12V Full Modular 120mm FDB Fan Compact 140 mm Size

Chassis: 4U Rack ATX Enclosure

Can you please pass on the specs to your (breadboarded)build like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:
Monitor:
include the age of the PSU if it's been in service for a while.

CPU fan would certainly help. I know Ryzen systems take a long time on first boot or config changes, so the CPU might be getting pretty warm anyway.

Either way, no CPU fan might prevent a boot until you get into the BIOS and disable that (if you wanted to, you shouldn't)

This was indeed the cause. Once I attached the cpu cooler it booted up. Thanks so much.
